Occult Science - the Verse

by Frank Thomas Smith

In the beginning was Saturn,

Invisible heat,

Bodies of will:

It died.

Then came Sun,

Hot and bright,

Bodies alive:

It died.

Third was Moon,

Liquid light and warm,

Awash with wisdom,

Bodies dynamic:

It died.

To Earth we descended in fire,

Scorched by the Spirits of Form –

Rebelled, were expelled,

and wander in exile still:

It will die as love

and live again

As Jupiter,

Moon reborn:

and die.

Venus will reign victorious

a Sun more glorious:

and die.

With Vulcan,

the seventh kingdom,

the circle closes in spirit.
